Pump Up Your (Protective) Volume
I had a client here the other day who felt every little thing, way too much. She cried for no reason, couldn’t sleep and generally didn’t feel comfortable in her own skin. I could see – and feel—that her energy layers were too, for lack of a better word, “thin.”
We all have a barrier that protects us from the slings and arrows of daily life. It’s like an extra skin and helps us stay balanced when stuff is being thrown at us. When its healthy, we feel strong and stable.
But when the world throws a haymaker, that energy layer wobbles and thins out. For me, I’ll feel like I have “holes” punched in me.
I feel raw, sore on the outside and the inside. Everything hurts.
This is a real phenomenon. Most of us will feel this weak, sick sensation only when we’re struggling with loss, grief, hard times. But other people like my client are habitually in this state. They need to pump up the volume on this energy layer. Like putting mousse in your hair to achieve 80s-level fabness.
This is a great exercise for anyone who’s feeling a little pummeled, or who needs to achieve greater daily “stability.” It’s also a sweet trick to do before heading into any sticky family encounters, meetings with irritating people or situations that make you feel vulnerable.
First, settle down and take some deep breaths.
Continue to breathe quietly and steadily. Now envision a small bubble of white light starting to emanate from your center. See it growing a little bit more with each breath.
The bubble continues to grow from your center until it reaches outside your arms. Another few breaths and it reaches your knees….down to your feet, over your shoulders, over the top of your head. You’re now inside a protective egg of light.
With each breath, this beautiful bubble extends outside of you a little bit more. The inside of this bubble is peaceful, sheltering, warm. You feel strong and safe with this healthy, whole layer of energy surrounding you.
Nothing negative can get past it to affect you; bad energy, harsh words, whatever, just bounce right off it. Know that you can move through your day feeling strong and centered. You are clear and protected.
Now go through your day like the Warrior Princess (or Prince) that you are.
